Obituaries - NJ - 1901 - William Henry Bridle
William Henry Bridle, only child of Frances and William A. Bridle of Navesink, died on Saturday of bronchial consumption, aggravated by asthma. He contracted a cold about three years ago and consumption developed. He spent a winter in the South and returned home greatly improved in health. Last winter he had an attack of the grip and this hastened the work of the disease that had already made inroads on his health.
Mr. Bridle was thirty years old and was unmarried. He was born at Tiverton, Devonshire, England. At an early age he became a bound apprentice in a dry goods store, according to the English custom, and served the term of his apprenticeship. Fourteen years ago he and his mother came to this country, his father having preceded them a number of years. For six years after coming to this country he was cashier for Hilton, Hughes & Co. of New York and for three subsequent years he was bookkeeper for Glendening & McCleish of the same city. He then worked some time with his father at the Navesink greenhouses. Three years ago he secured a position as bookkeeper in a cut flower establishment at Morristown and he remained there until forced to quit a sort time before his death on account of failing health. He had been a member of the Episcopal church since boyhood. He was consistent in his religious profession and was of exemplary character.
The funeral was held yesterday afternoon at All Saints' church at Navesink and was conducted by Rev. J. C. Lord. The pall bearers were William DeVesty, William Golden, Leroy Carhart, George Snyder, David Westervelt and Frank Despreaux. The body was buried in All Saints'cemetery.
